Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I do think it is a book that will appeal to some and they will love it or others may read and just not 'get it' .. I'm glad I did.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The First Lie?

The whole fear of the ocean and history of the seals was intriguing .. it really is a book with a difference and simply charming. A journey of discovery, it paints a lovely picture of Hawaii and has left me wanting to read the next in the series.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I was absorbed all the way and particularly like the elements of Selkie seeking her darkside/dead mother. It was quite eerie in places, she hears voices, music and 'sees' a lady - but she has some wonderfully supportive friends.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There is so much tension, Selkie escapes from an abusive relationship and relocates in Hawaii .. there is a lot of folklore, some colourful characters and plenty of adventure.

Yes, it does have a paranormal twist but ultimately I would say it is a mystery/thriller with a hauntingly quaint backdrop.

Any additional comments?

I came across this book when I was actually doing a different guest post with the lovely author on my blog. I was attracted by the cover, fell in love with the name Selkie Moon but subconsciously I think the 'paranormal' genre part prevented me jumping straight in. I started it, got a little way then stopped due to a tight schedule on other books then went back to it .... well after a few chapters I was then reeled in!
I purchased and listened to this on audiobook and the narration was compelling with an Australian accent which highlighted the experience.
